Capital Planning for Colleges and Universities

Managing a large portfolio of facilities and infrastructure at colleges and universities is no easy task. Developing capital plans is an aspect of facilities management that many maintenance and engineering managers at colleges and universities often struggle with. Determining how funds should be spent is a complicated process.

How can your facility management team efficiently maintain an inventory of asset systems and major components that include system descriptions such as the year installed, asset life expectancy, projected replacement year, adjusted replacement year that is based on facility condition assessment data, condition rating, current replacement value as well as estimated renewal costs?
